The European Cluster Conference will be preceded by a targeted EU Cluster Matchmaking event on Tuesday morning, the 14th of May. This matchmaking event offers a great opportunity to establish new contacts and collaborations with partners from across Europe. The matchmaking event at the last European Cluster Conference attracted 114 cluster organisations from 21 European countries – nearly a third of the participants – and generated over 500 face-to-face meetings.

The 2019 matchmaking event will take place at the JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel (address: Calea 13 Septembrie 90, Bucharest 050726) from 09:00 to 13:00 in close proximity to the Palace of the Parliament, where the European Cluster Conference will start at 14:00.

Participation in the matchmaking event is free of charge but requires prior registration. You can indicate your interest to participate to the matchmaking event in the registration form of the Cluster Conference. If accepted, the link to the matchmaking platform will be provided by individual email.

It is organised by the European Observatory for Clusters and Industrial Change in collaboration with the European Cluster Collaboration Platform and the Enterprise Europe Network.
